There is a certain anticipation for spring and the summer this time of the year, and I just love it. Winter still clings to the earth, but spring gently whispers, "I am coming." The disfigured land appears, still battered down by the long night of winter. The creation around us longs for renewal.
And this is also the perfect season of the year to ask God for spiritual renewal. The church all over the world anticipates together the coming of Good Friday and Easter. We hear God saying to us "Return to Me, and I will return to you." He longs to renew his people! This week we continue the journey in Malachi, verse-by-verse, and together we pray that God will bring us renewal.
If you want to get out of the house with your family, check out Family Fun Night at Calvary this Friday. And just in case you missed it, the Reasoner Family gave glory to God on the front page of Sunday's paper for His miraculous grace in their lives. You can check out the video online here.
You are loved. Can't wait to worship with you again.
